Another Goofy Trump Video

As it turns out, Donald Trump has actually just been doing an elaborate (and bad) impression of 80s comedian and Police Academy star “Bobcat Goldthwait”.
Don’t believe me? Check it out.

I made this real quick earlier this week. Enjoy!

Godzilla for Boone County Destroyer

This is probably the longest continuous shenanigan I have done. For the past 2 years, I have been frequently updating a Facebook page called “Godzilla For Boone County City Destroyer,” including making the wonderful Florence water tower stomping GIF. Over the last few weeks, I have been paying for Facebook ads for my gag page to appear to very targeted audiences in Boone County, to the point where hopefully these people are pretty much seeing the ad all the time lol We ended up getting a lot of shares on the ad and plenty of new likes and laughs.

We also did Door-to-door canvasing, thanks to the Godzilla costume I purchased this summer and have since been upgrading fursuit-style into a real Godzilla costume.


The canvasing wasn’t as successful as possible due to the fact that nobody was really available to help me with it the week before the election. we did it really last minute, but we still got quite a few confused looks and good laughs for it. Sadly none of the videos turned out well, so I’m not gonna bother posting them, but I will share with you the script of talking points we kept on the clip board for use while canvasing.

Greeting:
“hello Sir/Madam, Do you have a minute to talk about the upcoming local election for City Destroyer?”

No: “We’re sorry to bother you, please have a wonderful and smashing day.”

Yes/What: “Godzilla is running for office of City Destroyer in November on behalf of The G.O. M. party, the Gigantic Outraged Monstrosities party. The time has come for serious candidates to step forward in Boone County, and to step ON Boone County.”

Experience:

“Are you aware of Godzilla’s experience as a public servant? Over the past 70 years, He has personally worked with numerous high ranking military officials of the Japanese and US military on several large projects. Together, they ensured that maximum crushing occurred in places like Tokyo and NYC. Now, its time for Boone County.”

Go into policies from here.

Policies:
“While Godzilla’s main platform is on top of your house or place of business, there are a few things Godzilla has fought for through out his life, primarily himself.

Godzilla is pro-life. For his life, not yours.
Godzilla is in favor of all green initiatives, like himself.
Godzilla plans to destroy the heroin epidemic, along with everything else.
Godzilla supports the second amendment, bullets only make him stronger.
Godzilla has big plans for restructuring the economy, as well as the topography.
Godzilla wants to eliminate unnecessary spending, as well as spending at all.
Godzilla will make nuclear waste management is a large priority.
Godzilla wants to Make America Great Again, as great as it was before it was colonized by man.
Godzilla fights against growth of big business, Godzilla has fought plenty of bigger enemies, like Mothra.”

Opponent: “Godzilla’s opponent, the incumbent Ebola Virus has not done what he has promised 2014. He has not reaped destruction to our society, Godzilla is tired of politicians who play these games.”

Qualification: “it is true that some have questioned Godzilla’s birth affecting his candidacy. This is merely a political tactic. Godzilla was born in 1952 at Bikini atoll, a US military base.”

Other office: “Godzilla is a public servant. he has stated that he will also accept a write in position as Boone County District 5 Stomptroller.”


Closing: 
“In closing, Godzilla is a loving mother who desires to represent the needs of Boone County…’s destruction.
Godzilla seeks to unite Northern Kentuckians, that way they are easier to find and crush.
Godzilla’s goal is to eliminate Boone County’s Carbon Footprint and replace it with his own.
A vote for Godzilla is a vote for change. BIG change.

We hope to hear your voice at the voting booth, screaming in terror for Godzilla. Thank you for your time.”

If they are responding positively, before leaving ask if we can have a quick photo op with them shaking hands with Godzilla. if they agree, also ask if they have a baby that Godzilla can kiss. Because, you know, it would be good for his image.

  • Sadly no one had a baby Godzilla could kiss.

I also designed a chat bot for the Facebook page, which you can check out by going to the page and clicking “message” and type any message to Godzilla and see how he responds! Its pretty fun and was a good learning experience for me to try out.

I even wrote an editorial to send into the Boone County Enquirer for the election day paper, but I forgot to submit it before the deadline (PS how am I an honors student in college!?).

Unfortunately though, Godzilla informed us on Wednesday that he had lost the election. He mad a very gracious move in conceding to his opponent, 2016’s biggest fear: “Impending Race War.”

Sad, but clearly the people have spoken. they are not ready for true destruction yet. So it looks as though Godzilla will be seeking the office again in the next election! What a true public monstrosity.

Funny Photoshop: Death Certificate

Today I am beginning a new series of posts called “Friday Funnies”. Friday Funnies are exactly what they sound like, fun and funny things posted on a Friday. Now, these are not exactly shenanigans or full-on pranks, but they are funny things that I think are fitting with the theme of this blog. I won’t put one up every Friday, just when I feel something is appropriate.
They might be anything from a funny screenshot I took, to a silly mini-prank, to a contest where I ask you to submit a caption for a photo, to a neat project I’ve been working on! Enjoy!

Funny Photoshop: Death Certificate
Directly below is an actual advertisement Steve F. and I saw one day last year while checking his email. It just seemed silly, but not silly enough. Below that is how I improved it.

Conan’s Home

Last week I moved into my new apartment near NKU. Seeing as my apartment windows face the main road of the complex, my dear friend Conan has been on guard during spooky late night hours.
You know, just greeting the neighbors.

Say, how much is that Handsome Barbarian in the window?

A Rabbi, Priest and Minister Walk into a Bar… Seriously.

This past weekend, Zach R., Derek K. and I dressed up as the classic “walks into a bar” gag and, well, walked into bars in Clifton and OTR.

we really committed and got all decked up in nice costumes, and it paid off.

Not everyone got it, but those who did thought it was the funniest thing!

Several bartenders and patrons got pictures with us. One bartender even told us that from now on, we are his “this one time when I was working at a bar” story.

all of the videos that we tried to film got messed up when my phone screen lock went on in my pocket, unfortunately. The biggest loss was the great bit we did when we walked into a bong-filled headshop in Clifton and I (the priest) casually stated to my companions “see, this is that new age religion I was telling you about.”

It worked out pretty good. Last time we all went into a bar, it turned out to be one big joke. Ha!

Changing Sorority Girl’s Car Paint Gang Signs

Temporary car paint is only supposed to be left on for a few days to a few weeks at a time. It can actually permanently stain if you leave it on for too long!
Since a lot of the sorority and fraternity students at college were leaving this paint on their windows on for months at a time (or in some cases, as long as 4 years), I decided the least I could do is help them out with a little gag.

Basically I just changed their frat or sorority (gang sign) letters to different Greek letters in the same place. Others, like the one in the picture above, had their propaganda statements written on them, so I spell checked them. You know, to help them out. They are in college after all.

Most of them noticed and changed them back pretty quickly, but I love the idea of someone just driving around, then looking in their rear view mirror and realizing “WHAT I’M NOT IN OMICRON SIGMA GAMMA!”

The Great Taco Shenanigan

This is absolutely my new favorite prank and video!

This Tuesday, Taco Bell gave away one free taco to every customer from 2pm to 6pm as part of their “Steal a Taco” promotion with the NBA. So of course, me and Daniel I. used this opportunity to push the limits of acceptable behavior and, in a costumed charade of silliness, scored 15 free tacos!

This story really begins way back in 2011 when Taco Bell had a promotion involving the World Series. They promised to give every customer a free Taco if a player stole a base, which ended up happening. So of course, Jeremy and I wanted our free tacos, then we decided to make it a little more fun. We wanted to see how many free tacos they would give us. Inevitably, costumes and characters became involved.

2011

The video really tells the whole story, but essentially we went through 2 different taco bells (I cut them out of order in the video, it made it funnier) in 8 different outfits, and got 15 free tacos. The employees mostly seemed to enjoy it, and one even asked up for pictures!

It just goes to show that you can get anything if you make people laugh enough!

Honestly it was a lot of fun. I appreciate Taco Bell for allowing us to take advantage of their generosity, for the sake of good clean fun!
